Costco Samsung S21 Rebate for T-Mobile up to $450 Virtual Prepaid Mastercard, With Trade In (Older Phones Qualify) 1/22 - 1/28

+56 Deal Score
82,615 Views
Here is the link:

https://membershipwireless.com/offer9

I can't see the warehouse prices of the S21 series itself but usually 10% lower. Appears you can also get the $100/$150/$200 Samsung credit as well. No add a line necessary.

https://membershipwireless.com/offer6

I think this deal is great for one of the older phones that qualifies for the $450 (such as Galaxy S8 or Iphone 8) and combine that with either the S21 or S21 Plus. If you're looking at the S21 Ultra and don't mind the EIP credits, than T-mobile deal is better.

Note FYI:

Since this deal isn't live yet, please confirm all pricing with Costco on the S21 phones ( guessing $720 / $910 / $1080 ) and double check that the trade in rebate can for sure be combined with the Samsung Accessories credt BEFORE ordering.

QA Note: 1/22 - 1/28/21

Yes it does.
$150 samsung s21+ credit, plus
$450 note 8 trade in although the trade in info I got only says $50 trade in. Then $400 will in the form of a virtual mastetcard. Thats how it was explained to me.

Will this stack with the current b1g1 free Samsung promotion? https://membershipwireless.com/offer1

Seems like both promotions overlap on 1/21
Please read the fine print on my first link. It states the offer is good from 1/22 - 1/28. I know the headline reads 1/21 but I think that's an error on their website.

Please read the fine print here as it lists out the devices and their trade in values.

https://membershipwireless.com/offer9

I'm a busy CPA so sorry that I'm being too lazy listing all of the fine details lol.

I think this deal is best if you can trade older phones that qualify for the $450 trade in value.

I'm not much of a fan of either the S21 or S21 Plus. I've seen them in person and they are just ok (a step down from the S20 equivalent series for sure). The S21 Ultra is a really nice phone though and a worthy upgrade IMO.

I have a Note 8 that might be worth trading in for one of the cheaper phones if I can swing maybe the S21 Plus for 910 + tax less $450 rebate and $150 Samsung credit so maybe 980 - 450- 150 = $380. If I really want the nicer phone, possibly the S21 Ultra for 1160 - 450 - 200 = $510. To me it's a way to monetize an older phone that isn't worth too much right now. I have a Note 10 Plus and the S21 Ultra is the only one of these phones nicer than that (barely).

T-Mobile told me that if you go with their deal and choose the bill credits, you're pretty much stuck with the phone for 24 months. If you do the T-Mobile deal and want to trade in your newly acquired S21 series phone (say for the Note 21 in September), the phone has to be paid off before you can trade in that phone for another and you'll lose the remaining EIP credits.

You don't lose the credits if you pay off early. When you pay off the credits move from line to account level now. It's called RDC. And it also frees your line for another device promo.

Edit : you're also applying the Samsung credit into your math. Which is flawed. It's only worth buying overpriced accessories on their website. It's not cash discount.

Agree I like this deal if you have an older phone that if purchased from T-Mobile would only qualify for $400 trade in via 24 month bill credits. I have an older S8+ so the Costco deal is much better than directly from T-Mobile. If I had a newer phone (S9 or newer) the T-Mobile deal is much better since you are getting $800 over 24 months. So for instance I'll be doing two trade ins. I'll be trading in the S8+ with Costco but I have a Pixel 4 XL as well and that I will trade in with T-Mobile. It is not true that you lose the remaining EIP credits if you pay off the phone. You do have to maintain service but you can pay off the phone (and you'll need to to qualify for another promotion).

Thanks for this link. I guess the idiots at the local T-Mobile store told me incorrect information.

Thanks for the clarification regarding the bill credits (RDC). The slickdealers are more informed than the actual T-Mobile employees themselves.

And..I understand about the Samsung credits. They are never worth full value as you can probably buy the Galaxy Buds Pro for less than $150 within a few weeks. They are worth some money, perhaps like 60% - 70% of the actual rebate amount.

I agree. Many Costco mobile sales reps don't know the nuances of the network carriers plans.
This is a good deal for certain devices like S8 for S21. Or for those who don't want an EIP. I'm on the fence. Cos I hate EIPs but I have an S9 to tradein.
I did the S20fe promo and used the credits plus tradein an old ear buds for buds live for cheap. The $100 is certainly useful. But I'd say you're buying more stuff and won't account it towards the cost of the phone in math.
